For Teachers – Partnering with EyeMobile
What do we do?
Our mission is simple: making sure kids can see well. We know if kids can see well, they will thrive and be successful students.
screening is where it all begins…
STEP 2. We/you will set up a date where we can do screenings in the classroom. Ideally, we would like a corner of the classroom that will allow us to screen each little one without distraction, but we understand it’s a classroom and noise is inevitable. The screening itself is done by a gadget (PlusOptix or Retinomax) that gives us an estimate of each child’s prescription.
now what? eye exams…
STEP 3. Once a teacher sends us all of the consent forms signed, we schedule a date for the EyeMobile to visit the school. Remember the EyeMobile is 32-feet long and is a full clinic on wheels. Depending on the number of kids that need exams, we can schedule 15-18 kids per day. Our start time at schools is usually 8:00am and exams are scheduled every half hour.

Glasses are awesome!
STEP 4. It is important that we make glasses cool and normalize wearing them in the classroom. More often than not, when we deliver the glasses, we get other children who didn’t need them, but still want a pair. This makes children feel special.
Most importantly, we are here to help you every step of the way. Call or email us at any time.
